Coca-Cola Fighting Obesity? Check Out Their New Ad Campaign!

Coca-Cola might just have the right idea.  They are launching a new ad campaign that shows YOU how to burn off the calories of your favorite soft drinks!  You can look at this from two sides... 1. Are they really fighting obesity when the ad still shows you full calorie products? OR 2. If we're not changing our ways anytime soon, at least this ad educates the consumer on balancing your favorite treats with physical activity!

What do you think about Coke's new campaign?  Post a comment below!
